Telangana: Opposition backs CPI's Porubata'

CPM state secretary Tammineni Veerabhadram said that the people of the state had never asked for Bangaru Telangana.

Jangaon (Warangal): In a bid to create awareness amongst the people about the failures of the TRS government, the CPI joined forces with all the Opposition parties and launched its ‘Porubata’ in Jangaon on Friday.

Speaking at the public meeting held on the occasion, CPI national secretary K. Narayana said the only intention of the campaign was to achieve social justice for the people of Telangana. He said the state government has failed to fulfil its elections promises. “This campaign would highlight the failures of the KCR government,” Dr Narayana said.

Speaking about the ongoing issue between Jangaon district collector A. Sri Devasena and MLA Muttireddy Yadagiri Reddy, he demanded the state government act immediately on the issue.

“An IAS officer is accusing the MLA of encroaching land belonging to a tank while the MLA denies the charges. Why is the state government mum on the issue? Conduct an inquiry in the issue and if the MLA is found guilty, suspend him, if the Collector is making false allegation, suspend her. But if you do not act, the people will soon suspend you,” he warned.

CPM state secretary Tammineni Veerabhadram said that the people of the state had never asked for Bangaru Telangana as is being claimed by Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao. “The people need jobs, land to till and water to irrigate,” he said, adding: “The ‘Telangana talli statue depicts a rich princess with all the gold ornaments. The real ‘Telangana talli’ should be like Chakali Ilamma.”

TD state president L Ramana said when the state government fails to look after the people; it’s the responsibility of the Opposition to question the rulers. He called up on all the Opposition parties to come together in this fight for social justice.

TJAC chairman Prof M. Kodandaram said development does not mean building big buildings, only when people lead a good life can it be said the state is developed.

The Porubata campaign that began in Jangaon is expected to travel 5,801 km across the 31 districts in the state for 59 days. The finale will be held at a public meeting in Karimnagar on December 3.
